One week from today I'll be sitting at my desk in Uptown Charlotte.
I'm having some serious mixed emotions.
As I sit here and write this post and look down at our daughter playing on her play mat, I could cry.
At the same time, I know it's time for me to go to work and I'll be happy getting back into the groove of things.
I have TRULY enjoyed every last minute of the 13-weeks I've had off.
I really thought I would get bored off my rocker, but I really haven't.
Despite my 'go-go-go' personality I have really enjoyed our days where we just hang out in our pjs and hang around the house.
(that is, still getting out of the house for a walk in the neighborhood)
Anyway, this is our last week of doing such things.
I plan to take Shelby to her nursery school starting Monday to get into the swing of things there.
I expect to be a TOTAL MESS!
I'm already getting sad about it and we still have a few more days!!!
So, we're making the most of the time left.
We've enjoyed visits from cousins.
And, playing with our toys.
Shelby even managed to go with me yesterday to get my hair cut.
I was a nervous wreck about it, but she did great until the very end.
She got fussy because she was tired.
In preparation to go back to work I cleaned my closet out yesterday.
I tried on my work clothes.
I'm happy to say that they FIT!!!
I was SOOOOO relieved!
Even so, I'm still trying to lose another 5 to 7-pounds.
In an effort to do that our meals are looking like this.
Not exciting, I know.
I marinate the salmon in sesame oil, soy sauce, splenda brown sugar and sesame seeds.
We grill it on the Foreman.
I'm also keeping up our daily walks.
Even Brad joins in on the weekends.
The other big thing on my 'to do list' before I go back.
Get all of Shelby's pictures from the first few months into albums.
I can't believe how much she's grown.
I got a little teary looking back.
That's all I have for today.
